Congratulations to Luke and Jessica! Baby Anya Kate Dougherty arrived safely yesterday, October 4, 2011 at 10:50 P.M.
This morning I asked Fred whether today was Wednesday or Thursday and he answered me, “See what happens when we don’t pray the rosary? We forget what day it is!” Guess we became too busy yesterday to pray together. How can that be considering how hard and together we prayed for a safe delivery of a healthy baby, not only yesterday, but for months and weeks? God is always good and I am sure He heard our whispered thank-you yesterday for the blessing of this beautiful baby girl. Life was so busy and so much was going on that we didn’t come together as a family as we normally do each night. We ran out of time. Poor excuse really, but we do thank God for life and this little blessing. Thanks to all of you for your prayers as well.
Back to farm talk very soon as we butchered a beef and have some photos of that fun procedure to post. Even amongst the excitement of new baby we were still able to go harvest yet another pickup load of apples and so apple cider is on the agenda again tonight after Fred gets home from work. That will be our 6th apple cider pressing. Thanks to all the nice neighbors for sharing their apples with us!!
